Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue -- Keep Both of Them to Yourself on Feb. 14

Keep Private Details Private

Have a special night planned? Well, bully for you. Er...sorry. Well isn't that nice!

Here's a tip worth its weight in 14 carat heart-shaped gold: keep those Valentine's Day details to yourself and your very best office buddies. Your hopes, your dreams? Keep them tethered to financial targets, sales goals and marketing strategies when in the office. No one needs to know you're hoping for a proposal or ready to drop to one knee. Instead, smile discreetly and say that you "have plans." That's enough.
